Slade (New Species #2) by Laurann Dohner


∴ Slade (New Species #2) by Laurann Dohner


Book 2 in the New Species series. The books can be read as stand-alone stories, but it is advisable to read them in order to get the most enjoyment from the series.

Dr. Trisha Norbit is flat on her back in a hospital bed, pinned under a really big New Species male. Though drugged out of his mind, he promises her ecstasy and is determined to deliver—but hospital staff intervenes. 215 is a man Trisha will never forget. But, when she meets him again at Homeland…he doesn’t even remember her!

The nosy new doctor wants to know all about the breeding habits between humans and Species. Slade proposes a hands-on education but she’s not interested in a one-night stand. He can’t offer more because he’s haunted by the memory of a woman he once tried to claim. He’s shocked when he realizes they are one and the same. He’s blown it—she’ll never give him a chance now.

But, when her life is in danger, he’s the only one who can save her. As they flee through the wilderness, their desire ignites and cannot be denied. Hot sex, on the run, has consequences that are even more dangerous and will change their lives forever.

Reader Advisory: There is a scene of an attempted rape.


As long as you are breathing, you have life left to fight for.

January 7, 2019 REVIEW (5 STARS)-

I am so happy that I decided to reread this series. I had such a great time reading this book and it is just what I needed in my life right now. I was constantly laughing at the banter between Trisha and Slade and their story just makes my heart melt.
I am SO excited to continue my reread with Valiant’s story and that is why this review is so short. I just can’t wait to dive right in to it!

DECEMBER 12, 2017 REVIEW (4.5 Stars)-
I loved this book and it only confirmed my feelings for the series. It was fast paced and constantly had my attention. I love that about this series; there is never a dull moment. The characters are great and all so unique. I have mentioned before that I find the New Species and the concept for them fascinating. The more I read about the species, the more I want to know about them.

Slade was so great. He was hilarious and I loved his sense of humor. I loved that he and Trisha had met before the book took place. I thought that was interesting and I was surprised that Slade didn’t realize that the girl he’s been obsessing over was Trisha. I liked that the author didn’t drag out the secret of their history and how Trisha told Slade rather quickly about her identity.

I loved Trisha. She had a gentle heart as a doctor but she also had a fire to her that I adored. There were many times that she blew up at Slade or others and I was like “You go girl!”. I am concerned about her pregnancy but I am also intrigued. The author could really go anywhere with it. Am I the only one that got Twilight vibes from this book because of that? I am really curious what will happen to Trisha and the baby and I hope the author continues that plot line in future books.

I am excited for the next book after meeting Valiant. I am curious where his story is going to go. He did mention that he wanted a mate at the end of this book but I am wondering if she will be human or New Species because he doesn’t really like humans but we have only gotten human female main characters so far. I can’t wait to read his book and find out!

The reason I didn’t give the book a full 5 Stars was because of the New Species females. I loved them in the first book and I really missed them in this installment.They weren’t present at all which I didn’t like. I missed Breeze and her attitude. I hope that will change in the future installments because I really want to see more of them. Obviously, I love this series and will be reading the next book.
